Video Interview: Between Two Nerds - Building Careers with Empathy
I was fortunate to be a guest on Steve Carroll's talk show "Careers Behind the Code," but Amanda Silver calls it "Between Two Nerds," so I'm going with that superior title. We also snuck a fern into the shot so that's cool.
In the interview I talk about Empathy and why I think it's an essential skill for developers, designers, and program managers to develop - deeply.
Steve also asked me about how I got my start in tech, and I tell the story about the day I showed up at home and the family van was gone.
I wasn't sure how this interview would turn out, and I don't usually like talking about myself (I'm much more comfortable talking to YOU on my podcast) but folks seem to think the show turned out well.
I also speak a little about "Living your Life by Default" and the importance of mindfulness, which is a partner to Empathy. Please do check out the interview and let me know what you think!
